An aircraft has to deal with various physical forces
and with a center of gravity. As a pilot, it is necessary to have knowledge of these forces and of the
center of gravity concept. Both affect the flying characteristics of an aircraft.
To understand how the basic principles work, it is
important to distinguish between the different types of unmanned aircraft:
will focus on rotorcraft and aeroplanes.
